“Literally, Paradise”
Reviewed 12 April 2016 for a stay in June 2015

This is a prime rental and rental location for just relaxing in the sun, swimming in warm waters, and close enough to get to some great attractions. This "villa" sleeps 15 including the casita on the property. Amenities include a chef who will shop and cook for you (added cost) and a cleaning woman who comes in daily to do dishes , empty trash baskets, etc. There is a BBQ pit, swimming pool, a couple of friendly jays who will want you to feed them, and a jacuzzi. The owner and "point person" and very accommodating and willing to help you schedule extra activities. There are two airports to fly into: San Juan and Liberia. If you land in Liberia, a driver can be sent to pick you up and take you directly to the villa.

“great and not so great”
Reviewed 22 March 2016 for a stay in July 2015

We were there for a family celebration. The house was beautiful and the the beach was enjoyed by everyone. Carol was very helpful with information and suggestions.
The only downside was that we were robbed. . My grandchildren lost computers, back packs, shoes etc. i lost a very good watch.
It was a lovely place but people should be aware of this problem. From talking to people on the beach, we were not the only ones to have this problem.

Thank you for your review. It is an unfortunate reality that in tourist areas around the world, there are criminals that look for opportunities. I'm just sick that your family was victimized in this way. Since your visit, the community of Tamarindo has recently demanded and been granted a larger police presence and better patrol on the beach. We are also constantly striving to improve and refine Villa Cascada. We have recently joined together with the three other houses in our gated enclave and installed a very robust electric fence around the perimeter of the property that is very discouraging to the criminal element. It is our goal to provide a safe and tranquil oasis where our guests can come to and relax and have fun.

In general, Villa Cascada far exceeded our expectations and we will definitely be back. Perfect rental for our group of 10 millennials (5 couples). Details follow:

Location: the fabulous beach is a 30 second walk out the back gate of Villa Cascada. The town of Tamarindo is a short walk up the beach. Sitting around the gorgeous pool we were entertained daily by numerous howler monkeys, iguanas and birds. If you like plant life, this Villa is for you. Countless palms of all varieties and lush plants surrounding the pool.

Villa: this property is fabulous!! Big and quite private. Great rental for our group. Guest rooms are all beautiful. Master bedroom and the casita will knock your socks off! Very unique bathrooms- ours was outdoors in a lush tropical setting. Never saw anything like it before. The villa is well equipped with all the needed amenities and has a great kitchen if you want to do some of your own cooking. The only minor constructive observation I could make would be to get an additional coffee maker. A group of ten coffee drinkers really taxed the one in the kitchen.

Personnel: from the moment you begin your contacts with Carol you will be so happy and pampered. What a nice, professional and friendly lady. From the beginning to the end of your rental she provides great support and tons of info.

Maria, the house manager is outstanding and nearby to help if needed. She speaks fluent English and provides a great walk through of the villa and all its features. She is only a phone call or email away. Always prompt in her responses. She provided easy access to Jairo - for transportation and tours, Patrice - a fabulous chef and Ines and Lorenzo - they take care of the villa.

Jairo - from the moment he meets you at the Liberia Airport you will be impressed. He is super friendly, speaks great English, provides great transportation and tours/excursions. Jairo took us to AutoMercado numerous times and was over the top helpful in the store and at checkout. This man will make your week much easier and carefree. He even took us to his parents restaurant in Villa Real where we got to meet his entire family and had a wonderful seafood meal served family style. Lobster, shrimp, mahi mahi and calamari. This evening was a highlight of the week.

Ines - what a delight!! Constantly smiling and over the top friendly and helpful. She maintains the rooms and kitchen. She helped in the kitchen with cooking and cleaning. Ines speaks very little English so put the Google Translate app on your phone to help you and Ines along. BTW, the Villa Cascada has great wifi to keep you connected as well as local phone service and an International phone.

Lorenzo - very nice man that maintains the grounds and pool. He does a nice job in a quiet, unobtrusive way.

Patrice - a wonderful chef that came to the house and prepared a delicious. A delight to work with. Not much English but her husband Diego helps her in that regard.

To Carol, Maria, Jairo, Ines, Lorenzo, Patrice and Diego - we can't thank you enough!!

MUCHAS GRACIAS y PURA VIDA

Your new American friends.

“Great house/staff/location”
Reviewed 10 February 2016 for a stay in January 2016

My wife and I rented this house for our 25th anniversary and we were very pleased. The condition of the property was immaculate and well maintained. Inez, the house keeper was great. She does not speak English but with our limited Spanish and the Google Translator app we did just fine. She cooked breakfast for us several times from traditional eggs and sausage to a genuine Costa Rican breakfast which was very good. Maria the property manager was also great to deal with. The location is great. A short 10 minute walk either up the road or on the beach gets you into Tamarindo. Tamarindo is a very cool little town with tons of restaurants and bars (stay away from the Casino - fair warning). We did not even need a car the entire week we were there. The house has drivers available that would take you on any excursion or simply to the grocery store in town. Almost every day we got to see Howler Monkeys moving through the tree line between the pool and beach. They are no danger to you and fun to watch. This house could easily fit around 15 people very comfortably. we highly recommend this rental property for anyone considering a house rental. We have been to CR many times and always stayed at nice resorts but this time rented a house. Going forward we now know the house is the way to go in our opinion.

“Pura Vida Perfection!”
Reviewed 16 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Our group of 5 couples stayed at Villa Cascada for 5 nights last month. The owner, Carol, was great to work with in booking the house. From the moment we were greeted at the airport by Jairo, the travel concierge that works with Villa Cascada, to the moment he dropped us off, we experienced the trip of a lifetime! He went out of his way to ensure that we got to do any and every activity that we wanted, when we wanted and we were able to enjoy it to the fullest. From zip lining to white water rafting and an amazing animal sanctuary to massages on the beach just to name a few. We experienced the beauty of Costa Rica and learned alot about the Tico culture.
Villa Cascada couldn't have been more perfect for our group. A beautifully furnished 6 bedroom two story home ON the beach with a gorgeous two tier pool and lush landscaping. Each couple had the privacy of their own room and bathroom and the common areas both inside and out were great for getting together as a group. Plenty of dining space for all of us inside and outside as well. A well appointed kitchen with all of the amenities allowed us to be able to buy groceries at the local supermarket to have at the house. The house manager Inez is an angel! Such a sweet and hard working lady. She came to the house everyday and kept the house immaculate for our entire stay. She also prepared breakfast for us (both American and Tico) on several days for a nominal cost. Lorenzo cleaned the pool area and kept the grounds up beautifully. We walked on the beautiful beach every morning. We rented surf boards and kayaks on the beach not far from the house. The guys of the group had an incredible fishing trip with a local company, thanks Go Fish! Having a house on the beach allowed us to enjoy the most amazing sunsets we have ever seen. For dinner we walked 10 minutes down the beach and tried several great restaurants in Tamarindo. All were delicious! I would highly recommend Villa Cascada and thank Carol, Jairo, and Inez for helping us have an unforgettable vacation. We hope to return again soon!
